 2019 Veterinary Technician of the Year:


Ed Carlson, CVT, VTS (Nutrition)


The NAVTA Veterinary Technician of the Year award is given to someone who has been active in providing leadership for the association, as well as, the overall betterment of the industry. This year’s award winner embodies these qualities and works tirelessly for both NAVTA and our profession at large. The NAVTA board is thrilled to announce the 2019 Veterinary Technician of the Year is Ed Carlson, CVT, VTS (Nutrition). 

Ed is a member of the Learning and Development team for Ethos Veterinary Health where is works to educate the veterinary teams of Ethos throughout the country. Ed is the current Vice President of the Massachusetts Veterinary Technician Association. In this role, he has grown the association’s annual conference to a now 2-day affair for 2019. He also serves as the Treasurer for the New Hampshire Veterinary Technician Association. 

Ed’s commitment to NAVTA is clear from the variety of roles he has held. He served as a Member at Large on the board for 2 years. Following that, he took over as the interim chair of the Committee on Veterinary Technician Specialties where he oversaw the creation of updated guidelines for the CVTS. As the NAVTA District Representative system came into existence, Ed quickly stepped up to serve as the District I (New England and New York) representative. He is well-respected by the state associations in the Northeast for his insights and hard-work on their behalf. Ed is also heavily involved in the Veterinary Nurse Initiative, serving on the working group and spending countless hours getting the word out about the goals of the VNI to those in his District. In 2018, Ed traveled throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire on behalf of both NAVTA and his state associations to give VNI presentations and answer questions. 

These short paragraphs are only a short list of what Ed Carlson does every day to promote and grow the veterinary technology/nursing profession. The NAVTA board wishes to thank Ed for his tireless efforts on behalf of veterinary technicians and nurses everywhere.
